The Legal Aid Practitioners Group has been selected, along with the likes of Civil Engineering Contractors Association and Chester University, to receive a share of £875,000 funding, from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES).

The funding – which is part of the UKCES UK Futures Programme – will enable LAPG to create bespoke management training for legal aid firms and organisations.

Many legal aid firms and not-for-profit providers have traditionally struggled to focus strategically on management, because of lack of time, resources and management expertise.

LAPG will use the funding to create a package of management training which is flexible, affordable and relevant enough to overcome these obstacles.
